The stark difference between Obama and Putin is:

Obama sank the U.S. from prosperity to ashes, and Putin brought Russia from out of the ashes to prosperty.


形成了鲜明的区别,奥巴马和普京之间;
奥巴马沉没的美国从繁荣于灰烬,
而,普京把俄罗斯从灰烬于繁荣。

not quite true. The US prosperity or its debt does not have much to do with Obama's policy or time in office. These have been problems over 50 years in the making...
the one stark difference between the two that I have seen is that right now the only 'positive' things that Obama can tell his own people is that they are 'exceptional' as compared to the rest of the world's people and that they have the 'strongest military power ever'... Putin can tell his and other people that they too have a right to peace, to prosper, and that they can be on their way up even if it takes a while. He does not come across a war-monger to divert attention away from the failures of his own society.

Obama inherited an economically sick country but still a whole country. Putin inherited practically an economically bankrupted country, that is a remnant broken piece of the former great USSR.
While Obama goes about destroying and killing by creating and fighting war after war, meantime, Putin goes about consolidating and rebuilding his broken country.
Guns alone cannot bring prosperity to a country, only Commerce can! Guns are only for defense, just like a knife,
in a surgeon's hand, is for saving lives.
That separates Putin from Obama.....
the wise and ,the foolish.


奥巴马继承以经济病了的国家,但仍然是整个国家。
普京继承切实的经济,破产的国家,这是一个碎片的前者伟大的苏联. 的同时奥巴马去一下,破坏,和杀戮由创建和战斗,
战争后的的战争. 与此同时普京去巩固,和他破碎的国家重建。
单靠枪不能带来繁荣一个国家。只有Commerce可以!枪炮只是对于国防就像一把刀,在外科医生的手是拯救生命。
分隔普京奥巴马..... 聪明的和愚拙的

National Debt has increased more under Obama than under Bush





CBS
(CBS News) The National Debt has now increased more during President Obama's three years and two months in office than it did during 8 years of the George W. Bush presidency.
The Debt rose $4.899 trillion during the two terms of the Bush presidency. It has now gone up $4.939 trillion since President Obama took office.

The latest posting from the Bureau of Public Debt at the Treasury Department shows the National Debt now stands at $15.566 trillion. It was $10.626 trillion on President Bush's last day in office, which coincided with President Obama's first day.

The National Debt also now exceeds 100% of the nation's Gross Domestic Product, the total value of goods and services.


Mr. Obama has been quick to blame his predecessor for the soaring Debt, saying Mr. Bush paid for two wars and a Medicare prescription drug program with borrowed funds.

The federal budget sent to Congress last month by Mr. Obama, projects the National Debt will continue to rise as far as the eye can see. The budget shows the Debt hitting $16.3 trillion in 2012, $17.5 trillion in 2013 and $25.9 trillion in 2022.

Federal budget records show the National Debt once topped 121% of GDP at the end of World War II. The Debt that year, 1946, was, by today's standards, a mere $270 billion dollars.

Mr. Obama doesn't mention the National Debt much, though he does want to be seen trying to reduce the annual budget deficit, though it's topped a trillion dollars for four years now.

As part of his "Win the Future" program, Mr. Obama called for "taking responsibility for our deficits, by cutting wasteful, excessive spending wherever we find it."

His latest budget projects a $1.3 trillion deficit this year declining to $901 billion in 2012, and then annual deficits in the range of $500 billion to $700 billion in the 10 years to come.

If Mr. Obama wins re-election, and his budget projections prove accurate, the National Debt will top $20 trillion in 2016, the final year of his second term. That would mean the Debt increased by 87 percent, or $9.34 trillion, during his two terms.

that is not likely Obama's fault, it is the thing with numbers and math - as debt is not repaid, interest adds up on interest and so the increase will be higher, the later we go in time. It is an exponential function.

Excerpt:

National Debt Under Obama

By Kimberly Amadeo

In addition, Obama increased defense spending to more than $800 billion a year. In fact, his security budget request of $895 billion in FY 2011 set a new record. Even though troops were withdrawn from Iraq in 2012, and Osama bin Laden was eliminated in 2011, Obama requested $851 billion for security spending in his FY 2013 budget -- more than in his first year in office. Although Obama abandoned the phrase "War on Terror," he spent $602 billion -- almost as much as the $850 billion Bush spent in eight years.

thanks! that clears something up.  I reckon it is not only debt, but also deliberate increase. looks like there is no intention to repay... that is when people increase such borrowing!!
